Overview

LLM International Business Law will enable you to develop knowledge and skills in relation to the legal rules regulating a variety of business activity across the world. The programme is ‘bespoke’ in that you are able to frame your study according to what interests you with specialist optional modules.

You’ll approach business problems from the law’s point of view, and examine legal rules to identify their coherence and consistency. You’ll also evaluate legal business solutions in terms of the law’s purpose and underlying rationale, and from the perspective of economic and social purposes the law should serve.

Research and professional insight

LLM International Business Law is offered within the dynamic Centre for Business Law and Practicewith all the facilities that a leading research-led university offers. This includes opportunities for extra-curricular activities that enhance transferable skills and develop a knowledge of the law’s impact in the wider world.

The Centre for Business Law and Practice offers a wide range of experience and expertise in a number of fields, with links to the business community through, for example, the Advisory Board, which includes practitioners amongst its members. Industry and professional speakers regularly participate in conference and seminar events, which you’re encouraged to attend.

Course content

Compulsory modules studied throughout the year will enable you to hone your legal research and writing skills, culminating in your dissertation – an independent piece of research on your chosen topic.

Our optional modules will give you the opportunity to build your postgraduate programme from a varied range of international banking, corporate and business law, and mix and match your modules according to your area of interest.

You’ll also benefit from our Support in Academic and Personal Development programme. This runs alongside your taught academic programme in semester one and is specifically designed to complement the School’s induction activities and ongoing academic skills support for students, both home and International .
